6 months of radio history - Free to a good home

I'm having a clear out and have discovered 6 months' worth of Howard Rose's "The Radio Magazine" from 1998 languishing in a cupboard. Issues are numbers 303 to 327 inclusive, 31 January to 18 July 1998. Issue 303 includes news of the Essex Radio takeover by DMG and includes a full page Radio Authority ad inviting bids for the Solent regional licence. Issue 327 tells us that the Radio Authority has given the Green Light to Capital's takeover of XFM.

I was about to bin them but then thought I might one day bump into someone who'd say they'd have been interested, so here's your chance.

If anyone wants them I live close to Central London so happy to arrange a pick up, otherwise I'd be looking to cover postage - weight is about 1.3kg. Hermes would be £4.

If no one else wants them I'll take if only for a read through and pass on...

There are probably better homes though so I'll give this thread a bump, and if anyone else has an interest feel free to send there instead!

I'd potentially be interested in scanning and publishing these, if I understood the legalities surrounding that. I guess the copyright is now owned by Tindle.

^ It's another of those 'surely no one would have a problem.... would they?!' moments....

Why not just to drop a link to this thread on Tindle's, and wait what happens (image)

Mark/James - want to arrange a pick-up?
